Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To seek approval to procure and award a contract for the supply of recruitment advertising services in respect of both Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucester City Council’s staff vacancies, (given that the County Council provides a HR service to Gloucester City Council).

Decision:

In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

 

Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:

 

Delegate authority to the Director: Digital and People Services, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance and Change to:

 

1.     Conduct a competitive process under Crown Commercial Services’ RM6124 Communications Marketplace Dynamic Purchasing System in respect of a call-off contract for the supply of recruitment advertising services in relation to both Gloucestershire County Council’s and Gloucester City Council’s staff vacancies. The proposed contract shall continue for an initial period of 2 years and include options to extend its term for a further period of 1 year on its second anniversary and an additional period of 1 year on its third anniversary (i.e. 2+1+1 years);

 

2.     Award such contract to the preferred tenderer; and

 

3.     Determine whether to exercise the option to extend the term of the contract for a further period of 1 year on its second anniversary and an additional period of 1 year on its third anniversary.

 

 

For the reasons set out in the report.
